VeloCity Atlanta 2022: Sign up now and support Grady Health System

The annual community movement returns to Bouckaert Farm

Run, bike or walk in support of Grady Health System by registering for VeloCity Atlanta 2022.

The yearly community movement is coming back to Bouckaert Farm Saturday on May 7. Participants can soak up picturesque views at the 8,000-acre farm and adjoining neighborhoods.

In its fifth year, VeloCity Atlanta will continue to offer several ways participants can engage in peer-to-peer fundraising. They include a virtual ride, run or walk as well as in-person participation at the venue.

Register now to join the movement and give to Grady. By riding, you’ll raise funds to make sure Grady’s health care is accessible to everyone. In doing so, you’ll promote health and strength in the community.

New in 2022 is the inaugural VeloCity Correll Challenge, in honor of the late Pete Correll, former chair of the Grady Memorial Hospital Corporation and Grady Health Foundation boards of directors. This competition promotes fundraising for Grady, continuing Correll’s legacy of leadership. The Correll Challenge will acknowledge winners in the following categories: Team Raising the Most Money, Top Individual Fundraiser and Largest Team of Participants.

VeloCity 2022 gives runners, walkers and cyclists their choice of courses and in-person or virtual participation options. Each participant can register individually, form a team or join a team.

Cyclists have the option to choose from 10-, 25-, 50- or 65-mile distances along the best cycling routes in metro Atlanta. Fully supplied rest stops and on-route support are offered. Routes cater to all cycling ability levels.

Walkers can look into the 5K and runners can do the 9-mile trail run. Water stops are included along each of the distances, along with incredible views.

Virtual participants who are riding or running can complete their course along any of the routes and log their miles on VeloCity’s event app, which is coming soon. They must complete their ride by Saturday, May 14.

Fees range from $40 to $110 for cyclists. Runners’ fees are $40-$85 and it’s $25 for the kids-under-13 5K. Walkers pay $40 for the 5K, and children can do the 13-and-under 5K walk for $25.

Virtual riders and runners have the same registration fees.
